Is there a Bitcoin miner that I can run using the command line on Windows? I want a CPU miner, not a GPU miner.
You can install the standard Bitcoin-QT client, navigate to
and then run
However this isn't recommended except on the Test network because it is next to impossible to generate any coins this way on the production network.
One of the best for both LiteCoins and BTC is
It supports both Linux & Windows
Download from here
You can get complete instructions from
Or just check the readme including in the zip
It Supports FGPA GPU and GPU for BTC & GPU for LiteCoins..there is extensive tuning instructions as part of teh community so if you want to get the most bang for your $$ then this is the one :D
You do understand that at this difficulty level, you will not recoup your power costs from bitcoin mining?
This link provides an idea of what hash rates you'll get from CPU and GPU mining https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison
I wouldn't recommend it even if the power is free. It just isn't worth the wear and tear on your CPU.
This client includes a command-line miner which supports CPU mining (and GPU, should you have one available).
But unless you're mining in a pool, you're not going to get any benefit from CPU mining. And even with a pool, you'll get very little.
